“This HBCU (Tougaloo College) established the foundation for my success…” – Kathy Bryant
Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I chose an HBCU because of the relevant culture I was immersed in. I felt comfortable with people who I could relate to and with.
The food looks great!!
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
My story is simple! I formed friendships and made connections that I will cherish for the rest of my life! Tougaloo Eagle Queen , thee I love!
This HBCU established the foundation for my success as of today, and the success yet to come! I often reflect on TCs’ small knit family and appreciate their nurturing inspiration.
Sometimes as I’m driving or sitting somewhere by myself tears of joy start to stream down my face because I think of the goodness of God and think how far he has brought me……from a little country girl to a TC alumni….to a teacher ..to an assistant professor of education. God has truly indeed been good to me!
"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*
Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*
Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?
